13-Nov, Semis:
Top seeds trounced
in Pakistan finals

Both top seeds were beaten in the finals at the Mushaf Squash Complex in Islamabad.

The men's final was a repeat of last week's CNS International climax in Karachi, but this time it was Aamir Atlas Khan who triumphed, recovering from losing the first game to retain the title he won last year, taking his career tally to four, all won in Pakistan.

It was a different story in the women's final as defending champion and top seed Christina Mak went down in straight games to Egyptian teenager Heba El Torky, who added a second WISPA title just weeks after winning in China.

13-Nov, Semis:
Farhan & Aamir reprise as

El Torky makes Islamabad final

The men's final will be a repeat of Farhan Mehboob and Aamir Atlas Khan's clash in last week's CNS final after both won their all-Pakistan semi-finals at the Mushaf Squash Complex in Islamabad.

In the women's final Hong Kong's defending champion and top seed Christina Mak will meet Egyptian teenager Heba El Torky, winner of last month's China Open. Mak ended the run of unseeded Egyptian Sara El Noamany while El Torky ousted Hong Kong's second seed Joey Chan.

12-Nov, Quarters:
Safeerullah makes it a
Pakistan clean sweep

Just as in last week's CNS International in Karachi, a home winner is guaranteed after four Pakistanis triumphed in the quarter-finals.

Top seeds Farhan Mehboob and Aamir Atlas Khan both beat domestic opposition while Mansoor Zaman and Safeerullah Khan ended New Zealand interest in the event.

It was the opposite in the women's event though, as Pakistan's last hope Maria Toor Pakay lost out in five games to Sara El Moanamy, ensuring that both semi-finals will be Hong Kong v Egypt affairs.

10-Nov, Qualifying Finals:
Benazir Bhutto Complex
